Afternoon Tea Menu (containing Gluten)
As a coeliac, I was delighted to discover that I could have an afternoon tea that was presented the same way as everyone else’s. In fact, all dietary requirements appear to be catered for.
I’ll be honest I really want to talk to you about all of the delicacies but I can’t stop thinking about the scones. GLUTEN FREE SCONES!!! round heavenly deliciousness that comes in plain and chocolate form. Topped with clotted cream (jam is also supplied)…. just thinking about them has left my mouth watering.
When I wasn’t staring at my scones or lovingly eating my scones I was enjoying the delicious gin cocktails. My first cocktail was a fusion of Edinburgh elderflower gin liqueur and Harvey Nichols prosecco. This cocktail was delightfully refreshing, the sort of cocktail you can imagine sipping throughout the summer months.
The second cocktail I tried was Edinburgh pomegranate and rose gin liqueur and Harvey Nichols prosecco. This was a sweeter fruitier cocktail that tantalised the taste buds.
You might be thinking, okay we get it you loved the scones and gin but what makes this extra special. Well, ladies and gentleman that would be the…..
Cucumber Candyfloss, yes you read that right CUCUMBER flavoured CANDYFLOSS! Now here’s the thing, I hate cucumber because I can’t stand the texture of it, however, I loved this! It tastes how cucumber smells and is a real palate cleanser.
I honestly cannot recommend this afternoon tea enough, I for one am definitely booking back in before the end of July!
See you soon Harvey Nichols!
